So I’m starting to wake up from Think Visibility, after flying back yesterday to dive straight into a family party. I can honestly say it was very cool, my presentation went quite well I think, judging by the average of the reactions. Julian’s presentation after mine was very interesting as it was the first time I ever heard someone who actually works at a newspaper in Europe talk smartly about SEO.
Straight after that was the presentation by Judith Lewis, who did a great job as usual, but still felt she had to bribe the audience by handing out chocolates :). I’ve seen a couple of sessions after that, but one that’s worth a special mention was Zoe Piper‘s presentation on the content network, which was well structured and had an awesome design. I think she’s a better presenter than Patrick Altoft, whom she works for, so maybe Patrick should consider sending out Zoe in the future. (Kidding, but she really is a talent to keep an eye on!)
Both the night before the conference and the “after” party turned into great nights out, with a dinner in between the drinks and the conference which gave me a chance to catch up with Anthony Shapley, whom I met last year at A4UExpo and went on to work for Dave. He’s a really cool guy to hang out with, so I hope Dave makes a habit of taking him to conferences too!
So, the conference was a blast. Everyone was in a good mood and a lot of people walked up to me to have a chat, which I really, really enjoyed. In all I must have met about 50-60 people I didn’t know before the conference, that’s what I’d call good networking!
